Physical Therapy

How can physical therapy help me? 

Physical therapists are not only experts in treating pain, but also at finding the source of the pain. These professionals will look for areas of weakness or stiffness that could possibly be adding stress to the area that hurts. In managing chronic pain, it is important to understand the underlying cause of pain and treat it based on the individual case, using either strengthening and flexibility exercises, manual therapy, posture awareness, or body mechanics instruction. A Clearway physical therapist can help you by:

  • Maximizing your movement
  • Participating in your recovery
  • Helping you avoid opioids and surgery

What is a typical physical therapy session like? 

In a typical physical therapy session, you may experience one or more of the following therapies to help manage your pain:

  • Strengthening exercises – Using machines, resistance bands, or your own body weight (squats, lunges, and push-ups).
  • Low-impact aerobics training – This training will increase your heart rate, while also causing minimal impact on your joints.
  • Pain relief exercises – These exercises target areas that are causing your pain so that you become stronger and more flexible to help restore your daily function.
  • Stretching – This common treatment is extremely beneficial in helping reducing pain by creating more flexibility in your joints and muscles.
  • Massage therapy – a form of treatment in which a licensed massage therapist will provide you with a hands-on massage of your muscles, ligaments, joints and tendons.

Eighty percent of people will experience some form of lower back pain in their life. Most likely this will occur during the middle stages of a person’s life even as early as someone in their mid-twenties. One common way of dealing with this pain is to visit a physical therapist.

 

Physical therapy can help someone identify the cause of low back pain and then work with a patient to help relieve that back pain through exercise. A physical therapist can identify bad posture habits and determine patient history that would explain the cause of pain. Once the cause of back pain is known, an exercise routine can be prescribed to the patient that would counteract the lower back pain.

 

Cold packs, hot packs, and even electric stimulation can also be used to control lower back pain.

 

Clearway offers physical therapy with the latest equipment to help a patient recover. Balance disorders, spinal conditions, neurological disorders, and the musculoskeletal system are among the conditions treated at Clearway Pain Solutions.
